The property

Quarry Rigg apartments are an exclusive development at the heart of picturesque Bowness on Windermere that combine a heart of the Lakes location with contemporary comfort and style.

With fabulous views out over the rooftops to spellbinding Lake Windermere, Darcey's Apartment is the ideal location for a family getaway or break with friends exploring this magical part of the world, whatever the time of year.

This stylish first-floor apartment has a light and airy open plan living and dining room with a feature electric coal effect fireplace and TV with DVD player.

The modern kitchen is fully equipped and the decor throughout the apartment has a smart boutique hotel vibe.

The double and twin bedrooms have lovely views over the lake and share a family bathroom with bathtub, overhead shower, wash basin and WC.

Although there's no outdoor space, there are plenty of walks for your dog within minutes of the apartment and the ascent up Gummers How will reward you with exceptional panoramic vistas across Lake Windermere and the fells.

There's one off road parking space behind the apartment.

Walk out of the door of Darcey's Apartment and within minutes you're in the heart of the lively village of Bowness with its shops, pubs and restaurants.

Built around a lovely bay, the cobbled streets are packed with attractions including a theatre, while golf and Beatrix Potter World are on the doorstep.

Cross the lake on one of the famous Windermere steamers and enjoy a waterside walk to breathtaking Wray Castle.

Apart from the huge range of walking and cycling trails virtually on your doorstep, Bowness On Windermere is extremely well connected for public transport so you can leave the car at home and explore by bus and train.

There's so much for families to do around the shores of Windermere including Go Ape and the Aquarium of the Lakes, or take a day trip north over the scenic Kirkstone Pass to explore Keswick and the North Lakes, with a trip to the Kong indoor adventure centre.

The Lake District is the ideal location for a family holiday and Darcey's Apartment is a stylish and contemporary base at any time of the year.
